This live webinar will serve as a discussion about oral argument opportunities for newer attorneys across venues, with a focus on the USPTO’s new Legal Experience and Advancement Program (“LEAP”). LEAP is intended to encourage the professional development of junior patent attorneys and agents appearing before the PTAB through increased training and opportunities for oral advocacy. The webinar will include the perspective of judges from the PTAB and District Court, as well as from in-house counsel.
